In 2018, the show was Once Upon a Crime: The Trial of Goldilocks, starring sixteen sophomore students. Tech was provided by junior and senior members of the IHA International Thespian Society and sets were designed and created by Director of the Arts, Mrs. Lisa Encke; various IHA art classes; and members of the IHA National Art Honor Society. The show was produced and directed by Ms. Maureen McNulty, and Eagle Ambassadors served as ushers for the event.
